The San Jose Chamber Orchestra, under the baton of conductor Barbara J. Turner, provides the exciting live soundtrack to sjDANCEco's 12th season opener, highlighted by José Limón's 1958 Mazurkas, an emotional tribute to the Polish spirit, set to a Chopin score. San Jose's own award-winning contemporary company specializes in the work of Limón, a ground-breaking Mexican-American modern dancer and choreographer. Also on the program are Broken Memory, a 1980 work by sjDANCEco founder Gary Masters and a trio of world premieres from company choreographers and dancers Maria Basile, Heather Cooper and Hsiang-Hsiu Lin. Come early for a pre-performance discussion by Masters. Learn More

Dancing was good -- I'd give it a B. But the musicians were absolutely terrible. The sound mixing was also questionable; Esmerelda's music was so loud that I might as well have gone to a club, judging by the ringing in my ears afterward.
Quotes & Highlights
“It’s not often that this hard-bitten critic is reduced to deciphering tear-stained notes, but such was the case after [‘Emotions Into Movement’]… The waterworks were prompted by two of the five short dances on offer, which featured the live performance of two of the most ravishing pieces ever written for cello and piano.” —bachtrack.com (4 stars)
